The traditional method for preparing sushi requires slices of raw fish to be held over unlit fires in order to secure that signature “uncooked” flavor. Explore such innovative foodsmithing with today’s Groupon: for $20, you get $50 worth of nigiri, sashimi, and inventive sushi rolls at Flying Sumo in Park City.
Flying Sumo provides a vast menu of freshly cut uncooked fish and an eclectic selection of Asian-inspired entrees. Start with a sesame-dressed wakame seaweed salad ($6) or the squid salad ($7), which is full of Japanese mountain vegetables. Nigiri (two pieces) and sashimi (six pieces) orders of tako (octopus: nigiri $6/sashimi $15) and sake (salmon: nigiri $7/sashimi $17) prepare diners' stomach chambers for Flying Sumo's traditional, fried, and special rolls. Sushi-ists will enjoy the samurai roll's ($11) fiery combination of tuna, shishito peppers, and radish gently doused in spicy mayo and Thai chili sauce. For fried followers, the Vegas roll ($15) takes layers of tempura-fried salmon and combines them with cream cheese, crab, and avocado. Special rolls—great for birthdays and license renewal parties—include packed, singular creations such as the meme-worthy Chuck Norris ($15) with its tempura shrimp, crab, jalapeño, and avocado.
